The UK Home Office recognises the moral and operational imperative to support the global fight against online child sexual exploitation (CSE). As such, the Home Office has committed £40 million towards the UNICEF hosted End Violence Against Children Fund (EVAC) to support activities intending to build international capacity to tackle online CSE. The EVAC's strategy for supporting international action aligned to the WePROTECT Global Alliance's (WPGA) strategy for national action.

Projects funded by the EVAC fund must demonstrate how they support the implementation of the WPGA's Model National Response.
